* At first, [[spoiler: Shulk coming back to life after Zanza leaves his body might not make much sense, given that Zanza was the sole life force of Shulk. However, after playing Xenoblade 2, it's evident that Alvis is the one who allows Shulk to keep living. As he is the missing Aegis, Ontos, he split his Core Crystal in half and placed it on Shulk's heart, thus giving him the life force necessary to come back from the dead. The only reason you don't see it is because the crystal is hidden underneath his clothes.]]
** [[spoiler: Additionally, it makes sense that Alvis's Aegis Weapon only manifests itself at the very end of the game. As he is the one that maintains the reality of the Xenoblade world, it is quite possible he does not have the power to summon it normally. It is also implied that the Mechonis and Bionis Monadoes are created because Zanza and Meyneth draw power from Ontos himself. During the final battle, Shulk is in close enough proximity to both Monadoes that Alvis is able to remove the borrowed power from both Monadoes and summon his Aegis Weapon, the TRUE Monado.]]

** Also in the [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2 sequel]], this is one of [[spoiler:Pneuma's]] many special abilities, making the similarities between her and Alvis quite close, implying Alvis is [[spoiler:Ontos]].

** One other thing also stands out... so when [[spoiler: Galea]] became [[spoiler: Meyneth]], the people ''Mechonis'' created were the Machina. Seems weird, I guess that god had a thing for machines, huh? [[spoiler: in Xenoblade 2, Klaus explains aspects of that scene where the universe was created that we didn't get to see... that Klaus told Galea that humans weren't so bad after all.]] Apparently, this person may have thought HumansAreBastards, and [[spoiler: Klaus]] tried to mention it. So who's to say that [[spoiler: the Machina are what Galea, also known as Meyneth, aren't her own idealised vision of what humanity could become?]]

* A bit of hindsight that occurs from ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'', in that the sequel revolves around the magical Blades and their Drivers that wield them. [[spoiler: Given the revelations in both games, it's clear that by all means the True Monado and Alvis himself are at least implied to be one of the three Aegis Blades, which makes Shulk and previous Monado wielders Drivers. Thus all of Alvis' appearances despite being part of the Monado make sense in hindsight, given that it's exactly how Blades can function.]]

** [[spoiler: Also note that the Apocrypha Generator was still active at the time. It's possible that Zanza was trying to ''kill and/or possess'' Shulk at that point, like he did with the Monado's previous wielders, and it was only because the Monado's power was suppressed that Shulk survived more-or-less intact.]]

* After the initial Mechon attack and Fiora's death, Shulk and Reyn converse about what to do from then on out. Shulk comments that there's another voice in his head telling him to "destroy the Mechon, every last one of them" and that Reyn would think it's unlike him. [[spoiler: After you realize he's housing Zanza's soul, it's entirely possible that ''wasn't'' all Shulk.]]

to:

* Three is a holy number and the game loves to reference it. The gods all have a trinity halo-pattern somewhere in their design. For Meyneth, it's around her body. For Zanza, it's three halos circling a central one above his head. [[spoiler: Alvis]] has it on his back jacket. But who else has halos on his body? [[spoiler: Shulk's red vest, indicating his ascent into godhood as Zanza's SoulJar.]]

* By the end of the game, there are three major factions: the heroes and their allies, the Mechon, and [[spoiler:the Bionite Order]]. All three get representation in the prologue. [[spoiler:Within your team, no less.]]

* During the kingpin quest chain, [[spoiler:Dedeba is arrested by the Alcamoth guards for the unlawful distribution of Highmore Caviar. You never see him again in this playthrough, so it is presumed that he is locked away for the remainder of the game.]] Now fast forward to the events follwoing [[spoiler:Mechonis Core. The majority of Alcamoth's citizens are either turned into Telethia or killed in the chaos following, with only however many half-High Entia could fit into the transports escaping. Assuming Dedeba was still locked up, that would put him directly in the middle of that mess.]]

*[[spoiler:All Faced Mechon seem to have 3 names: the name of their Core Unit (the one controlling them), a name indicative of their armor color, and their actual model name. Egil, Fiora, and Xord; Gold Face, Silver Face, and Bronze Face; Yaldabaoth, Face Nemesis, andů well, we don't learn Xord's model name--at least not immediately. It's a clever way to hide the name of a late game enemy: the Mass-Produced Faces. It's also a way to hide the fact that Xord is really just an [[EliteMooks Elite Mook]], apparently being so good at wielding his hammer because he used to be a blacksmith.]]
